Think about the last time you were in a theater or auditorium. When it is time for everyone the leave, inevitably the doorways get quite crowded and you end up sitting in a long line. Now imagine that same scenario during a fire-related emergency. As you can imagine, it is imperative to give as much time as possible for the audience and staff to evacuate.
Smoke Guard fire and smoke curtains can be easily integrated into a theater’s design to meet all necessary building codes and not interfere with the elegant design of most theaters. Considering the ornate architecture that goes into large auditoriums, fire curtains can be designed to stay completely out of sight except in the case of emergency.
Smoke-rated curtains deploy automatically, often triggered by fire alarms, at the presence of smoke or fire. These curtains can also be deployed manually. By segmenting the source of the fire or smoke, deployable curtains provide more time for evacuations and help emergency personnel quarantine the issue.
